Ofcom has today confirmed plans for releasing valuable new airwaves that could be used to meet the growing demand for mobile broadband services
An auction is planned to take place in early 2016 for the spectrum, which has been made available by the Ministry of Defence as part of a wider Government initiative to free up public sector spectrum for civil uses.
A total of 190 MHz of high-capacity spectrum is being made available in two bands – 2.3 GHz and 3.4 GHz – which are particularly suited for high-speed mobile broadband services. This is equivalent to around three-quarters of the spectrum released by Ofcom through the 4G auction in 2013.
Public Sector Spectrum Release (PSSR) – Competition and auction design issues for the 2.3 and 3.4 GHz spectrum award, including reserve prices
This document sets out Ofcom’s decisions on outstanding issues connected with the award of the 2.3 and 3.4 GHz spectrum bands. In particular, it sets out our decision to proceed with an auction of all the newly available spectrum without imposing spectrum caps, and our decision on the reserve prices that will apply to spectrum awarded in the auction.
